Historic Columbia River Highway

This incredible road leads to the Oregon border. You can exercise along the mossy Sandy River Road, finally arrived at the spring Dyer community orchard and blueberry garden.

Texas Hill Country Route

Whether it is driving three hours or three days, we strongly recommend that you go for the Texas hill country road trip during the fall. Maple State Nature Reserve, there are thousands of maple trees, creating a surreal dream like surrounding. In late October and early November, which gradually turn yellow to red maple, forming the world’s most spectacular foliage views. Since this is a protected area, there are many rare bird species if you are fascinated with bird watching.

Skyline Drive is a 109-mile road that runs the entire length of the National Park Service’s Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, generally along the ridge of the mountains.
